Our School

Introduction

At Nyewood Church of England Junior School we ensure that we maintain and develop the school’s religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Churches at Parish and Diocesan level.                                   

The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.

Our strong Christian ethos and values underpin everything that we do.  We seek to encourage children’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development alongside positively encouraging everyone to value themselves, respect each other whilst contributing to the school and wider community.

We offer a positive learning environment which supports and values each individual by encouraging them to be ’the best that they can be’.  By providing a broad and balanced curriculum which provides stimulating opportunities to enrich and extend the children’s learning experiences, we aim not just for excellence, but also for creativity and enjoyment. We strive to develop the whole child and provide them with the skills and attributes to flourish and succeed in a diverse and rapidly changing society.
